With Pot Legal In MA, Dispensary Giving Away Seeds For Free

CAMBRIDGE (CBS) — It’s a new day in Massachusetts, with marijuana legalized for recreational use as of midnight.

Pot can’t be sold legally in the Bay State until 2018, and only with a license to do so–but many are opting to grow their own at home, and one local dispensary is helping them get started.

“People are really excited that they’re able to grow their own,” Eli Constantinou, owner of a marijuana dispensary called Grow Your Own Stuff in Cambridge, told WBZ-TV’s Nicole Jacobs.

Constantinou said that, on day one, he’s already seeing a boom in business, with a line much longer than what he’s used to on a random Thursday–though this one isn’t so random. It was the November ballot vote that pushed inquiries for Grow Your Own over the edge.

“They’re kind of coming out of the closet if you will,” said Constantinou. “The grow closet.”

And since they aren’t allowed to sell seeds to customers until 2018, Grow Your Own is helping them out by giving away free seeds.

“It still has a little bit of a stigma associated with it, but that’s fading,” Constantinou said.

It’s now legal to possess and home grow pot in the state, though the language of the law is not final.

“There are a lot of details to be worked out, and we’re just going to continue to monitor this,” said Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey regarding legalization.

It’s raising concern even for law enforcement, especially concerning how to keep it out of the hands of kids and manage drugged driving.

Currently, adults aged 21 and older can possess up to 10 oz inside their home and 1 oz outside, and a household of two adults can grow up to 12 plants.

“I think the law was written pretty responsibly,” said Constantinou.

Law enforcement are still concerned that decriminalizing marijuana opens the door for black-market sales, and lawmakers have been very clear that they think provisions need to be made to certain areas of the law.

But until the grey areas of the legislation are worked out, there’s certainly a good amount of demand for the newly-legal home grow industry–Grow Your Own completely ran out of the free seeds by noon Thursday.
